You must be disciplined with whatever cartridge you choose.
.223 will do it easily with disciplined shots.

I don't know about too many other calibers, .303 I've used, 308 and .223.

I think that archery is way less humane than any bottleneck rifle cartridges.

I've taken coyotes, pronghorn, whitetail deer, mule deer, elk and black bear with center-fire rifles. I've taken many whitetail deer with a compound bow. Virtually all of the deer taken with a bow died as quickly as the animals taken with rifles (or the deer taken with shotgun Foster slugs or sabot slugs.) The target is always the center of the lungs and it does not fail regardless of the projecticle (bullet, slug or arrow.)

Looks like this horse has been beaten down enough. I have no doubt that the subject will show up again, somewhere down the road.
